Pretty Little Temples @ Sirumugai

A beautiful temple
Couple of years back when I was heading to and from Kotagiri in the Nilgiris, I find couple of temples pretty neatly painted or newly built while on road across Sirumugai,  in the Coimbatore district of Tamil Nadu. Since it was Chitirai - the beginning of Tamil month, many temples were at festival spirit across our path and it could be the reason these temples look refresh.

A beautiful temple
Both were shot at different day times, the one painted in sandal color was captured from the moving car and other was shot at halt when looking for direction, as we took detour missing the main road leading to Sathyamangalam.  I simply adore these temples for their pretty neat paint work on them and also   located on scenic even being roadside temples.

Newly painted temples have a charm, but old unpainted Temples also have a (different) charm! Beautiful pics :)

Such neat and natty buildings. The paint colours are the same as in my bathroom except the dominant colour is peachy with yellow highlight but in the same softer tones.

I always enjoyed admiring the Hindu temples in Malaysia. They are so big and colourful with interesting deities and motifs. Simply beautiful.
